I'm new to torrents so I'm going to give a brief overview on some of the things you might find necessary to find the solution. I am running on OS X 10.5.1 Transmission is version 1.05 Linksys wrt54g router (connected wireless) When I go to the advanced tab on Transmission it shows my port is stealth, is this hindering my torrent download speed? I only average around 14kbps, but it does sometimes shoot up to like 150. I read I need to port forward but have no clue, someone gave me instructions that I had to create a static ip, but the direction they gave me did not match the interface on my OS X network panel on system preferences. So basically, my question is does having a stealth port downgrade my download speed? If so how can I solve this?
